We've just completed our full review of the Nikon 1 V3, that manufacturer's enthusiast mirrorless camera. The V3 offers an 18.4 megapixel 1"-type CMOS sensor, a significant gain in resolution over its 14.2 megapixel V2 predecessor. Since its introduction the 1 system has offered impressive auto focus and burst shooting capabilities - see just how well it performed in our testing.
The Nikon 1 V3 takes its place as successor of Nikon's enthusiast-focused mirrorless line. The V3 offers an 18.4 megapixel 1"-type CMOS sensor, a significant gain in resolution over its 14.2 megapixel V2 predecessor. Since its introduction the 1 system has offered impressive auto focus and burst shooting capabilities so it's no surprise that the V3 excels in these areas - it offers 20 fps burst shooting with continuous AF and a Hybrid AF system using 171 contrast-detect and 105 phase-detect points. It's the most promising mirrorless camera Nikon has offered enthusiasts yet, and our full review is underway. In the meantime, take a look at our first impressions and shooting experience.
Given the physically small size and high pixel density we were mightily impressed by the 1-inch type sensor in the original RX100 and the follow up, the RX100 II. So how does the new RX100 III compare? Read on to find out.
After the announcement of the flagship Nikon 1 V3 the company revealed a new less expensive model sharing many of the features, including the 18-Mpix CX format (1-inch type) sensor with an improved hybrid AF system including 105 on-chip phase-detection points covering most of the frame, and new Expeed 4 level processor.

Hot on the heels of the Nikon 1 V3 launched last month, Nikon have just unveiled a new model in their consumer orientated J range of mirrorless hybrid cameras. With many features from the V3 filtering down to the new Nikon 1 J4, is it a serious contender for the point-and-shoot market?
After the initial interest surrounding the original Nikon 1 V1 and the somewhat lackluster follow-up to that in the form of the Nikon 1 V2, the firm has introduced, arguably, the most exciting looking and capable model yet, the Nikon 1 V3. Read on to find out how this reimagined model performs.
Launched alongside the Nikon 1 V3 hybrid camera on the 13th March 2014, the VR 10-30mm f/3.5-5.6 PD-Zoom and VR 70-300mm f/4.5-5.6 are two new lenses for the CX-format Nikon 1 series.

We examine at the specs in more detail to find out.
a small compact camera must overcome it's low ISO capabilities with a good lens. Fixed size or compact zoom that is ~f2.0 This ISO performance and f3.5 lens for more than 200$ is ridiculous these days. Sure, there are people that need fps, than there are people that just need a good prime. A nice small niche that will shell out this money. But, there is vast majority of buyers who just need excellent fixed zoom lens, not more than 3x on such a camera.
Better luck with P8000. If you give me f2.0 - f3.0 fixed zoom with ISO score > 500, I'll give you 1000$ easily.
As a Nikon owner and supporter the V3 is underwhelming as best. For the last year I've been using an Olympus E-PL5 as my light weight cycling, paddling and hiking camera. At half the price it's 50% better. Someone seems to have their head stuck up their butt.
On the other hand their D600, now D610, is outrageously good, in absolute and relative cost terms. So the user is left to carefully pick and choose their equipment and not rely on a single manufacturer to be first-class in all areas. That's why I continue to depend on DxOMark for information rather than the many fanboy sites!
